Take a bow, son

Dimitri Payet's virtuoso performance at Bournemouth tonight ended in a display of mutual appreciation between himself and the West Ham supporters.

As the two teams left the field at the final whistle, the French midfielder - who scored West Ham's equaliser and then set up Enner Valencia for his first of a brace - was ushered towards the travelling fans by James Collins.

And after a fine rendition of the 'Payet' song, he reacted by thumping his chest and bowing to the supporters in mock "I'm not worthy" fashion - before being greeted by ecstatic club captain Mark Noble, who threw his arms around his match-winning team mate.

Talking after the game, Payet thanked the fans for their continued support . "These fans are very, very good with me and very important to me, and [I want to say] thank you very much," he said.

Bournemouth led 1-0 at the break in tonight's Premier League encounter before being blitzed by a superb second half performance from Slaven Bilic's team, who ran out 3-1 winners.
